    Hi and welcome to the community 

    You are allowed to work while on lcwra and have a work allowance meaning you can earn a certain amount before it affects your uc 

    The amount depends on if you get help with housing costs or have dependant children 

    However the work you do should not contradict the reason for being awarded lcwra and working could trigger a new assessment

    To add to the information above from janer. If they start working they need to make sure the report the changes onto their journal.
